Race Weekend 9/20/13-9/22/13

Post by Matthew on 9/19/2013, 8:39 am

Well, I'm still pretty PO'ed about what they did to me last weekend... that was our race... but I'm gonna try not to let it interfere with my performance this weekend.  We were at this track early this year, and it did NOT go the way we were hoping... I finished 16th and a lap down.  Hopefully we'll be able to get the car set up better this weekend and try to win another race.  We don't have much time left to break that record, but I truly believe that this team is more than capable of it.  Maybe not at this track, unless we can perform much better than we did here last time, but there are a few tracks coming up the out #23 Goodyear Chevrolet is REALLY fast at!!!

Qualifying's over. We weren't as fast as we were hoping we'd be, but we're still satisfied with the result. The #23 Goodyear Chevrolet will be starting from 10th position on the grid!!!

Under red flag conditions right now... the track's having some "technical issues." The lights went out for a few minutes, so they brought us down to pit road to check it out. Someone must have done something wrong, because now the lights are out, and have been for some time. The trailers have their flood lights on, but other than that, the whole place looks kinda creepy. For now I'm just wandering around and talking to the other drivers as well as the team. We're running 9th right now. This track is REALLY slick, and passing is almost impossible. It's 68 degrees up here, and not keeping the track warm is gonna make it even more slick. Besides that, this cold weather, along with not keeping the engine warm could end up being bad for the cylinders... hopefully we won't lose one when we fire it back up. I just hope they get us back out there soon!!!

We had a Top 20 car at best tonight... but somehow, we managed to hold it together and put the #23 into VICTORY LANE!!! I knew that this team could rally back from the disappointment of a bad call last weekend, I just never knew it would be so soon. The guys put together a fast car for me, and worked so hard all night to make it even faster. We struggled a bit in the beginning, but we never quit!

I'd like to thank the sponsors:
- Goodyear Tires
- NAPA Auto Parts
- Comp Cams
- JEGS
- Mechanix Wear
- Lincoln Welders
- Auto Meter
- Sylvania

All of the people who work so hard and support me:
- Ray
- Ty
- Daryl
- My Mom
- Rachel
- BCG
- And everyone who works so hard back at the shop and at the track

And all of our loyal fans for pulling for us week in and week out.

Finally, I'd like to dedicate this win to my awesome girlfriend Rachel:
- Thanks for supporting and believing in me!!!
